Is this a myth? Do people get all decked out and attend formal affairs hoping to blend in with the crowd just to eat free chow? I guess it's one way to keep dining costs down, and at the same time enjoy the occasional helpings of fois gras, caviar, chateaubriand, and Bordeaux. Does anyone have any stories they'd like to share either first-hand or otherwise of people landing free chow where they weren't invited? I wonder if caterers or others in the biz are wary of this...Hmmm. Chowhounds aren't whistleblowers, are we? Nah. Not when chow is involved.
